This restaurant is beautifully set with some nice views of the sea on one side and marina on other. When we arrived there were only a few people eating, lots of empty tables but many people like ourselves were told that we would have a 45 min wait as we hadn't reserved. Most of the tables remained empty and 45 mins later they sat us at one of these tables. The mains were very good, but I had a disappointing starter and dessert. The avocado on the starter was not yet ripe, and the rhubarb in the kiwi crumble was not cooked through and inedible. Overall though the staff were friendly, place was nice; we still enjoyed our evening but I think that it has been over-rated on trip advisor. We chose this place as it had come number 2 in the ratings, but it doesn't deserve that rating. For this we were a little disappointed. Advice for the restaurant would be that they should review their reservations policy; lots of potential customers should not be sitting looking at empty tables for almost an hour.
